Mom turned 87 at the end of December. The day before her birthday, I ordered seven dozen mixed cupcakes from Publix, to share with the other attendees and staff at her adult day center.
They passed them out after lunch and led everyone in a pretty rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday.”
Mom enjoyed the serenade, and was too quick blowing out her candle for me to catch it on film.
A good time was had by all, especially Mom, who pushed aside her lunch and skipped straight to her cupcake.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
